When you think of a rocket launch, you probably imagine a glistening white cylinder emerging from a cloud of smoke and fire, then making its way into outer space. But while the sight of a launch may only last a few minutes, not many see the dedication, long hours and incredible team effort that made it all possible. “It’s not the hardware or the software–it’s the people on the launch vehicle team and their expertise that are the keys to our continued success,” said Mark Ogren, director of strategy and technology, launch vehicles, Northrop Grumman.

According to information published by the United States army on August 29, 2022, the U.S. Army Futures Command continues its modernization efforts with long-range precision fires, its cross-functional teams along with U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground are working to develop new capabilities to increase the rate of fire of the Extended Range Cannon Artillery or ERCA.

The Program Executive Office for Ground Combat Systems hosted a two-day demonstration event at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), Wash., on August 24 and 25, highlighting state-of-the-art communications and visual augmentation technology integrated into U.S. Army Stryker armored vehicles as well as Soldiers’ individual combat gear. Spc. Chandler Coats, U.S. Army, reports.

On a mid-August afternoon in central Texas, Soldiers in combat uniform gather together, preparing to engage in realistic battlefield training. With temperatures outside approaching the high 90s, one might expect the upcoming drill, situated amid a flat and dusty expanse at Fort Hood, to verge on the sweltering. Maureena Thompson, Army Futures Command, reports.

According to the U.S. Army Public Health Center, low back injuries result in more than one million lost or limited duty days for Soldiers each year. An unpowered exosuit designed to reduce the physical demands placed on soldiers is one step closer to adoption after prototypes earned passing grades from more than 100 soldiers at three Army posts. DEVCOM Public Affairs Office reports.

U.S. Marines will soon have a new state-of-the-art targeting system that increases their precision on the battlefield. The Next-Generation Handheld Targeting System, or NGHTS, is an innovative, man-portable targeting system allowing Marines to rapidly and accurately conduct target location and laser guidance during combat operations, a precious asset for the Joint Terminal Attack Controllers. Tonya SmithMarine Corps Systems Command, reports.

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded BAE Systems’ FAST Labs research and development organization a $17.5 million contract for the Generating RF with Photonic Oscillators for Low Noise (GRYPHON) program. The breakthrough technology developed through the program could enable an unprecedented combination of low noise, compact size, and frequency agility for next-generation airborne sensing and communications capabilities.

In January 2021, after several incidents of the same dramatic kind already encountered in Afghanistan, the Barkhane force in Mali was bereaved by two jihadist attacks carried out with high-power improvised explosive devices (IED) containing about 40 kg of explosives, Laurent Lagneau recalls in Opex360. The very high danger presented by this type of attack has led the armies of many countries to develop means of detecting them and then protecting themselves as much as possible.

Imagine the possibilities of a self-driving vehicle on the battlefield. Engineers at the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center, or AvMC, don’t have to imagine it: they are building it. The Autonomous Multi-Domain Launcher takes a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System — or HIMARS — and modifies it with hardware and software to be controlled remotely and driven autonomously. Katie Davis Skelley, U.S. DEVCOM Aviation & Missile Center Public Affairs, reports.

According to information published by the Indian Ministry of Defense on August 4, 2022, Indian-made Laser-Guided Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) were successfully test-fired from the Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Army at KK Ranges with support of Armoured Corps Centre & School (ACC&S) Ahmednagar in Maharashtra.
